March 25th was my daughter's birthday and she wanted to go out for a Birthday Brunch date. So we decided to head over to The Common Table in Uptown. They also have a location at The Star located in Frisco. The Common Place is a gastropub with American food. The Common Table offers entertainment ranging from live bands to DJ’s on site. They also offer unique menus during the week. An example would be the “Pour Mans Beer Dinner”. I thought the title was funny however, you get 4 courses and 4 pairings of beer with each course for a great value that will put a smile on your face. If you like beer you should try this selection, it’s offered every Monday Night.
On the weekend we visited, there theme was an “Old School Hip Hop Brunch”. Let me just say, I enjoyed the music as much as I enjoyed the food. Their brunch menu offered a variety of selections. My daughter and I both had the Notorious P-I-G which is a 50/50 blend of smoked Applewood bacon and beef on a toasted croissant bun I chose a toasted English Muffin, an egg over easy, tomato and this awesome beer cheese sauce which is to die for! We also selected the Buttermilk Biscuit Sliders which can be served as a shared plate or an entrée. All of their food is freshly made from scratch.
One of the things I love about Brunch are the Mimosas! A Classic Mimosa starts at $3.50 and the Tropical Mimosas are $4 (within this price range) which is very reasonable in my opinion.
The Common Place is located on Fairmount in a renovated/remodeled cottage style home, the patio is located in the gated front yard with a side deck patio. It is a uniquely styled building perfect for people coming together and enjoying good food, good cocktails and different types of entertainment. If you have not been to The Common Place or have not been there in awhile stop by you may find something new or just have fun. I’m looking forward to visiting the Frisco locations soon at The Star.
Until next time, I'll talk to later!

Last month I had the opportunity to go try out V-eats at Trinity Groves. I’ve been dying to try their food since I began following them on Instagram. Great photos can say a lot and their photos made me hungry. Meat or no meat! Me and my two daughters headed out to try some plant based food. I’m always willing to try new things especially food. The biggest test would be if my daughters enjoyed the food.
We started our meal with the queso and chips which was very good. I ordered the Taco of the Day which was the Lemon-Pepper Chick-Non Taco it was an order of 3. My daughter ordered the Mystery Machine-Fried Chick-non Bar VQ Brisket topped with Chipotle Mango Sauce, Guacamole, Lettuce and Tomatoes and The Shroom-Grilled Portobello Mushroom Panini with Pesto, Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella on your choice of bread listed on the menu. The sandwiches were huge and very filling. They received two thumbs up from my girls. The tacos were delicious and I did not miss the chicken. The flavor of chicken, the texture and the crunch of chick-non was perfect.
Our Waitress was very informative and patient with us newbies. She told us a little about the Owner/Executive Chef Troy Gardner who has 20 years of catering and restaurant experience. The Sous Chef, Evita Tezeno has been a vegan advocate since the 1980’s.The restaurant has a cozy vibe with original paintings on the walls created by Chef Evita. Not only do the customers get to admire her work, we were told she recently sold a few of her originals to Denzel Washington to add to his home collection.
V-Eats is located in Trinity Groves, if you have not visited make sure you do it soon. It’s well worth the bite!
Follw us on our journey on facebook and on Instagram Until next time, talk to you later!
